RuPaul's Drag Race is finally returning to our screens on New Year's Day.

Season 13 of the iconic show will land on 1st January and suffice to say we know what we'll be watching to help soothe our New Year hangovers.

This year's queens are as fierce as ever and include contestants Denali, Elliott with two Ts, Gottmilk, Joey Jay, Kahmora Hall, The Kandy Muse, Lala Ri, Olivia Lux, Rosé, Symone, Tamisha Iman, Tina Burner and Utica Queen.

With some seriously impressive skills (think ice skating and acrobatic skills), these queens will fight for the coveted title of "America's Next Drag Superstar" in order to claim the top prize of $100,000 (£75,000).

While some of this year's contestants are professional dancers, another is a make-up artist to the stars and one's been described as 'drag royalty'.

And then there's the huge Tina Turner fan who also happens to be Graham Norton's ex.

Plus the new series will also feature the show's first ever trans male contestant, Gottmilk.

The show's newest teaser trailer revealed that there's a twist in store for the queens in the first episode.

As Mama Ru herself puts it: "I hope you like surprises. I've got a big one."

"We're kicking off with six lip syncs for your lives."

RuPaul said of the show's new Covid-secure measures, which were put in place halfway through the last season and will continue in this season: "Competing safely and fiercely, our 13 queens proved that it takes more than a global pandemic to keep a good queen down".

And we're glad to hear it.

And that's not all. Just a few days ago, we learnt that RuPaul's Drag Race UK's second season would kick off in January.

In a teaser post on Twitter, the Drag Race UK account wrote: "Santa called and said you can have one present early.

"The first episode of #DragRaceUK series two lands on @bbciplayer on January 14th at 7PM."

RuPaul's Drag Race season 13 will air on VH1 and Netflix on 1st January
